Happy Saturday! A few days ago, I had the pleasure of co-hosting a shopping party at Alice & Olivia’s Soho store, alongside powerful boss ladies Angela Yee, Caryn Prime, Tiffany Reid, and Mashonda Tifrere. Guests gathered at 98 Greene Street to shop it up for Spring, with a portion of proceeds going towards Camba.
